Now instead of waiting for formal releases, you can get the latest nightly builds - updated each day.

These are put through the same batches of unit tests and automated integration tests as the main release builds so they should be reasonably stable for the most part. A new nightly build is produced every day even if there were no submitted code changes that day.

Linux users can use the command line instance manager (instructions below), Windows users for now need to update instances manually by grabbing the core archive and unzipping it over the top of an existing instance.

You can submit bugs at the issue tracker. Make sure you include the build timestamp for your nightly and that your issue still exists on the most recent build.

If that still doesn't deter you, here's how you get it:

  • Download the Nightlies version of the Instance Manager from
  • Run ./ampinstmgr --nightly upgrade SomeInstanceName to upgrade that instance to the current nightly build. You can ues--nightly as well when creating new instances. Omitting this flag will simply use the mainline build.

In the future I also plan to tag the nightly builds in some way to show what changes have been made and what's new in that particular build.
